Address Gender Pay Gap Issues Before Recruiting Female Talent

Although the Equal Pay Act of 1963 technically prohibits employers from paying women less money than men, research continues to show that women earn less money in the workplace (especially women of color), and that women aren’t in as many executive-level roles as men.

Here’s how you can address the gender pay gap at your organization.

Declare Your Commitment to Paying Women More

Make a public statement that your organization is devoted to offering equal pay and benefits to all employees, regardless of their gender, and that your organization is going to make a conscious effort to close gender pay gaps in its industry.

I’m a successful CEO and mother of 6. Here’s how parenting made me a better leader

I cofounded a (now) successful and publicly traded software company. But it wasn’t always that way.

The early days were a slog that lasted far longer than any of us expected. As the company hit its stride, I had children (five of them at that time) and took time off when they were young.

During that time, as most entrepreneurs do, I was building a following for the company on Twitter, launching our product as one of the first 50 in Google’s App Marketplace, and working with customers. I did whatever was needed, whenever I could find the time. Any task, big or small, was accomplished during the kids’ nap time, after bedtime, or sandwiched somewhere in between.
